Throughout Love Your Zoo week, BIAZA collection across the UK and Ireland will be hosting a week of fun activities for you and your family. Information on what your local zoo or aquarium has on offer will be posted on their websites nearer the time – so keep an eye out for details!
FIVE REASONS TO LOVE YOUR ZOO
- BIAZA zoos and aquariums offer a great day out for all – our members receive more than 23 million visitors each year!
- Of those 23 million, more than 1.3 million come as part of an organised educational visit – zoos and aquariums offer a fun way to learn about animals and nature
- By visiting your local BIAZA zoo or aquarium you are supporting our researchers in learning about the animals in their care, which enables them to improve animal welfare and understand the best ways to help these animals in the wild.
- Your visit also supports our members in their conservation objectives – BIAZA zoos and aquariums contribute to more than 800 projects each year, investing more than £10 million per annum.
- As visitor attractions, BIAZA collections also contribute about £658 million to the national economy and support more than 11,000 jobs.
